Mr. T has his own special plate and bowl (Walmart is great for cheap ceramic dishes) since he sometimes wipes his dishes off the table in an effort to clean his place. And he has toddler silverware. I used his pieces for the templates so they would match up perfectly.
All glued together. I like it! It has to dry overnight, but I’m thinking I’ll either Scotch Guard it a few dozen times, or make a sleeve of clear vinyl or laminate type material so it can be wiped easily. So we have a fully functional place setting place mat for under $5. And I have left over felt to make story board characters with!
The finished mat with all the pieces in place! If you have a great practical life post, please leave a comment and share the link! We love sharing great ideas!
